Bolney Estate wine makers capture an award for rose wine

Wine makers at Bolney Wine Estate have captured another award with their Cuveé Rosé wine.

The wine won third place and the equivalent of a Gold Outstanding award at the Prince Lev Golitsyn Specialised International Sparkling Wine Competition 2012.

Only the top three wines won this award, out of the 92 wines tasted.

The competition was held in the Crimean Autonomous Republic, in Ukraine, and was the fourth Novy Svet Competition.

Novy Svet means “New World” and is the name of the village and also of the large Sparkling Wine Plant that lies in the middle of it. The competition itself is named after Prince Lev Golitsyn, who founded the winery in 1878, as well as the famous winery of Massandra near Yalta, which both now belong to the Crimean Government. The winery, situated in Foxhole Lane, has won many other awards.
